Band          : Matchbox 20
Song          : Hang
Album         : Yourself or Someone like you
Tuning        : Normal - No Capo
Transcribed by: Steven Batchelder
Corrected by  : Don Kurelich 

I'm improving on the basic transcription that SB did.  It was basicaly 
there, but some of the chords were wrong and I'm showing a few 
enhancements.  These are subtle changes in the basic chords and a 
change in strum.  The chord differences are noted below and change 
only the tone of what's being played.  The strum in the intro and first 
verse is using your fingers (i.e. no pick, either your thumb or first 
finger).  At the second verse he switches to a flat pick.

Chords:
     G*      G*      C*    CaddG     Em*     Em      D
 E|--3--   --3--   --3--   -----   --3--   -----   --2--|
 B|--3--   -----   --3--   --1--   --3--   -----   --3--|
 G|-----   -----   -----   -----   -----   -----   --2--|
 D|-----   -----   --2--   --2--   --2--   --2--   -----|
 A|--2--   --2--   --3--   --3--   --2--   --2--   -----|
 E|--3--   --3--   -----   --3--   -----   -----   -----|


(*With finger strum*)

[Intro] 

G* C* (play 2 times)


[Verse]

G*                                                       C*
She grabs her magazines, she packs her things and she goes.
Em*                                    D      G*                    C*
She leaves the pictures hangin' on the wall.  She burns all her notes
            G*                         D                       CaddG    
And she knows, she's been here too few years, to feel this old. 

(Switch to flat pick)


G*                                                      C*
He smokes his cigarette, he stays outside 'til it's gone.
Em*                   D          G*                  C*
If anybody ever had a heart, well, he wouldn't be alone. 
         G                         D             CaddG    
He knows, she's been here too few years, to be gone. 

D      G Am   CaddG           G Am CaddG
And we always say, it would be good to go away, someday, 
               Em                D 
But if there's nothin' there to make things change, 
            CaddG                        CaddG (hammer-on E)
if it's the same for you I'll just hang.


[Solo fill]

G, CaddG (notice switch to G)


[Verse]

G                                                  CaddG
The trouble understand, is she's got reasons he don't.  
Em                           D    G                       CaddG
Funny how I couldn't see it all, 'til she grabbed up her coat, 
         G                             D     G                     CaddG    
And she goes.  She's been here too few years, to take it all in stride. 
G                            D              CaddG
Yeah, but still it's much too long, to let hurt go (you let her go).

Am     G Am   CaddG           G Am CaddG
And we always say, it would be good to go away, someday, 
                    Em               D 
Yeah but if there's nothin' there to make things change, 
            CaddG                        D
if it's the same for you I'll just hang, same to you I'll always hang.
       G  Am  CaddG           G        Am CaddG
Well I always say, it would be good to go away,
       Em                    D                     
But if things don't work out like we think and 
        Em               D                
There's nothing there to ease this achin', but if 
        Em               D
There's nothing there to make things change,
            CaddG                        CaddG
If it's the same for you I'll just hang.
